Wow I can't believe it's been over a year since I started The Hector Company, and what a year it has been! I launched the website on my 50th birthday, I remember being so excited as this was a whole new adventure for me and I was getting ready to spend the weekend in Wales in a holiday cottage with the whole extended family to celebrate my big birthday. Little did any of us know what we had in store! It literally was a couple of weeks later that the world was thrown into awful lockdown situations due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. Fast forward nearly 14 months later and we are only just starting to hobble out of its devastation and limp towards a little more 'normality', although I'm not to sure any of us really remember what that was and wonder if we will ever get back to it.
For me personally it wasn't all bad, lockdown allowed me to have more unexpected time with my family, build The Hector Company and welcome little Reggie (our Puppy Scottie dog) into our lives. So many of us have welcomed puppies into our lives over lockdown and I think they have kept us sane, although there have been times, at 3am when someone won't stop barking / crying, that I have questioned my own sanity.
I started up The Scottie Dog Club Face Book group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/scottiedogclub) in February 2021 and we already have nearly 500 members which is pretty crazy and but it's made me realise what an amazing community of Scottie Dog lovers we have from the UK and all over the world. We've had a couple of 'Scottie & Coffee' zoom calls - I guess we had join in on the 'zoom' madness lol.
So now I am working on all the 'boring bits' SEO's on the website, social media content plans and stock control - now I sound like I know what I'm doing but I don't - I just wing it.
Thank you to all of my fantastic customers for your support and all of my lovely Scottie Dog Club members - you're all PAWSOME.
